Sheriff Inzaghi and Angry Inter meet for the first time in a major fight

Sheriff Tiraspol will not be underestimated when Inter Milan travel to San Siro for a crucial Champions League clash, according to coach Simone Inzaghi on Monday.

The Moldovans have had a remarkable start to their competition debut, beating Shaktar Donetsk and Real Madrid to finish top of Group D.

Inter, on the other hand, picked up just one point from their opening two matches and will face an uphill battle to reach the knockout stages for the first time in ten years.

"Sheriff have not won two games by chance," he added. "We've faced the other two teams and they're top teams," Inzaghi told a news conference.

"We are facing a team that is high, organized, and does not defend only deep. "This is a crucial match for our campaign,"

The Italian champions have failed to make it past the group stage in the last three seasons, and history may repeat itself if they fail to score in their next two European games, at home and away to Sheriff.

Inzaghi's side have yet to score in the Champions League this season, despite being top scorers in Serie A with 23 goals in eight games, and they suffered a 3-1 defeat by Lazio on Saturday.

"My teams create and score a lot of goals and we have the best attack in Serie A," Inzaghi said.

"The defeat in Rome upset us a lot, I saw that the players were angry because they are winners. Tomorrow we must finally score goals, because we haven't yet achieved it."
